Some inspiration

Ashby Mill is a windmill in Brixton, South London, it is a tangible reminder to all Londoners of the close links that the capital had with agriculture and food production. There are links on their website (http://www.brixtonwindmill.org/home) to an extensive collection of Flickr galleries (http://www.flickr.com/groups/ashbymill/pool/) which have been submitted by anyone with access to the group or who has used the Ashby Mill tag.
